The countdown is on! I was so excited to be invited to check out all the back to school styles for this year at JCPenney! I was provided with a $200 giftcard and was determined to make the most of it. It came just in time too! T minus 7 days until I send my daughter off into the world called high school. Being a teen is hard especially when everyone is looking at what you wear the first day and who are we kidding, that happens practically EVERYDAY. However, being the mom that takes said teen shopping for clothes can be even harder! Thank goodness that JCPenney has all the fashions she wants at the prices I can agree with! We’ve been shopping here for years and every department always seems to have just what we need.
Inside the store, we were surprised by all the offerings around each turn. Literally everything was at a special price. Hoodies, jeans and leggings-OH MY!
First, it was the all in important backpack that we checked out. My teen chose a “wild” pattern bag of awesomeness from JanSport. Since this is something she will be carrying every day it had to be the exactly what she wanted. It didn’t take long for her to pick her fave and move on to the junior clothing section.
Just when I thought it couldn’t get any easier, she looked over at me and said, “Mom, I’m so happy you took me shopping here.” Then my utter delight continued. We bought 3 Arizona tank tops for $2.99 each. That is the lowest price I have ever paid anywhere for a tank. Then a couple more shirts were added to the mix. We got these for 5 bucks each!! On top of that we got a dressier shirt, 3 sweatshirts and a sweater.
We had to pick up some comfy shoes for those days when “socks and sandals” are the requirement.(giggle) We got 12 things to add to her wardrobe for a little less than we had on the gift card ! What’s even better than that was the fact that SHE loved each and every item, even more than I did. It means so much to me to make my kids happy! Check out her photos!! You can see the joy in her eyes!
Now I want a rewind. I want first day photos that look like that!! Thanks to JCPenney for making my daughter’s first day look one she will want to share and one for me to treasure forever (because she actually let me take it)!!
